A Michigan Perspective on 'The U.S. and the Holocaust’:
Rev Stancy Adams Joins the Conversation

On Sunday, September 18th, the Zekelman Holocaust Center and Detroit Public TV presented a panel discussion probing the issues raised by the new PBS series and how they relate to our own community. Rev Stancy Adams, chair of the Interfaith Leadership Council of Metropolitan Detroit, spoke about what the lessons of the Holocaust can teach us about our own challenging times.

To explore these and other issues through a local lens, Detroit Public TV and The Zekelman Holocaust Center in Farmington Hills presented a public conversation with historians, a second generation survivor, and a leading voice of the interfaith community on crucial topics raised by the documentary.
Rev Stancy Adams was joined on the panel by:
  • Catherine Cangany, director of the Jewish Historical Society, an expert in Jewish life in Michigan during the Holocaust
  • Dr. Jeffrey Veidlinger, professor of History and Judaic Studies at the University of Michigan, an authority on modern Jewish, Russian and Eastern European History
  • Arthur Horwitz, publisher emeritus and former executive editor of the Detroit Jewish News, who will relate his own personal story as a son of Holocaust survivors
